FOR the first time since the early part of the century, a 21-gun salute will take place from the middle of Victoria Harbour on Friday to mark the official birthday of the Queen. The firing will take place from the three portable saluting guns attached to the deck of HMS Starling which will sail along the harbour at midday. The salute can no longer take place from shore because of reclamation work.
